Fundraising events are about building relationships with others in the community with likeminded support of our mission. More important than the amount of money raised in a single day, fundraising events can lead to awareness of, and continued support of our mission to help veterans.

When you host an Americans for Independent Living fundraiser, you help change the lives of veterans experiencing homelessness or disabled from their military service.

Fundraiser ideas include:

  • Golf Event
  • 10,000 Step Challenge
